Food Carts in Downtown San Jose?

Gyro-y Goodness | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Food carts are all the rage of late, and everybody goes on and on about the variety and quality of the food carts in San Francisco, but hey! there are some amazing carts right here in the south bay.

There’s BBQ Kalbi serving up great Korean food in Sunnyvale and Mt. View, Curry up Now in Burlingame, the Chowdermobile which is sometimes seen hanging out around Tesla Motors in Palo Alto, Bulgogi BBQ in San Carlos, Roli Roti has a number of south bay venues including the San Mateo and Los Altos farmer’s markets.
If you want to try them though, you’ve got to know where they are, and short of tracking them down on Twitter that could be a lot of work for your lunch.  I just got a tip from San Jose Realtor CJ Brasiel about a way to sample the wares of several carts at once in downtown San Jose. According to her post the new swanky downtown hi-rise The 88 is hosting a bevy of carts with tasty treats every Thursday for the month of August from noon to 2 PM. You can bet you’ll be seeing me there. I heard the pulled pork from Mogo Barbeque was outstanding and a great value to boot! Here’s a link to her post for more info on the “Carts of August” at The 88.

    Great additions to the food truck list; here’s a link to the SJ Metblog post I wrote back in May about the foodtrucks as well.

    I am looking forward to “The Great Food Truck Race” on the food network August 15th.

    Keep two other trucks on your radar, The Louisiana Territory and No Way Jose, both run by a successful local catering company. Louisiana Territory does cajun food and No Way Jose will be doing Mexican food. They both have FB pages. Louisiana Territory has a website which shows their monthly schedule, or you can follow on FB/Twitter.

    Nice, here’s the link for the facebook page for Louisiana Territory but i didn’t find one for No Way Jose. Please add it if you find it and thanks for the heads up!
